Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that could cause a lack of power. Assuming it's not a characteristic, you could have a turbo issue or a boost leak, an inaccurate sensor, an exhaust restriction, or a fuel system issue.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to check for fault codes. Do you know if any codes are setting?
